Ported: Planetside 2 and Warframe headed to PS4
Sony is quickly establishing their next-gen console as a viable platform for developers to publish Free-to-Play titles onto. So far War Thunder, Blacklight Retribution, DC Universe Online, and the PS3 exclusive Dust514 have all been confirmed for the Playstation 4.
Now two more games have been added to the PS4's F2P lineup. SOE's massive MMOFPS Planetside 2 and Digital Extreme's hack-and-slash space ninja MMO Warframe have both been confirmed for release on Sony's latest console.
In terms of how they will play, both devs have confirmed their games will retain the same feel as their PC counterparts although obviously they will be adapted to use a more controller friendly interface. SOE did mention however, that the PS4 version of Planetside 2 will utilize its own servers separate from the PC version. This makes sense seeing as it's been proven PC players have quicker reflexes and better accuracy in shooters than their console brethren. Digital Extremes has yet to confirm on any split but, it would make sense to allow both groups to co-exist on the same server given the fact that Warframe is focused on PvE and in third-person. Making it both easier to control on consoles and non competitive.
What game would you most like to see ported to consoles?
